Quote:Heinz,Do you get the RA Overcurent error with no scope mounted?Mike
Quote:Heinz, when you wake up...:) With no load on the mount, and the tension spring out 2 turns, do the 2 minute encoder motor routine. Two minutes at slew speed 2, then 2 minutes at slew speed 8 or 9.
Then load up your ota w/counterweight(s) and try it.
Quote:You could try swapping the motors to see if the problem follows the RA motor. You run the risk of doing damage to the current DEC motor. Have you called iOptron customer support?
Quote:Calling iOptron may be the best option now. Because at the moment nothing seems to work. I getting alternating DeC-connection error and RA-connection error. The mount refuses to move.

Quote:Mike I use windows but there is a mac version available. As for connecting the mount I use pulse guiding with the cable that came with the mount for connecting the hand controller and the ascom ioptron.net driver

What exactly is the error message? Overcurrent or connection?
Overcurrent would indicate too much current draw in any axes.
Connection error messages are usually cables or connections?
I listened to your mount slewing in your vids. It sounds suspiciously like your worm is not centered over the ring?
The 3 washers I don't have, anywhere. But if there are three, there are 3 screw holding the mainboard on, no washers there. There are 3 hinge locking bolts? That's all there is with 3 of anything on the mount.
If you call me 'John' again, I will really wonder if you are reading the threads completely?

Quote:On the basis of your post I'll take the mount apart again. How do I make sure the worm is centered?
At the moment I am mainly getting connection errors, and when they are not there, then overcurrent, but only in RA.
